Mixed martial arts classes are a wonderful way to boost your strength, endurance, agility and power. As an article from Evolve MMA attests, an MMA session may be better than a gym workout. Plus, it’s more fun and can boost your confidence, as you’re learning how to defend yourself.

Even better, you’ll know you’ll be learning from one of the most elite fighters in the world at the Backstage Fight Academy: UFC Fighter Kelvin Gastelum.

6. It’s a fun academy where everybody is welcome

No matter where you’re from or what your skill level is, you can join the Backstage Fight Academy. Everybody is welcome.

KG has fought some of the best fighters ever, including Israel Adesanya, and he’s also taught people of all experience levels. He’s excited to welcome you to the Backstage Fight Academy.

7. You’ll learn self-defense

You never know if a time will come when you have to protect yourself. Mixed martial arts training teaches you self-defense so that you can protect yourself when something unexpected happens.

At the Backstage Fight Academy, you’ll learn MMA skills under the structure and guidance of Kelvin Gastelum and other experienced instructors and fighters. By the end of the program, you’ll be much better at self-defense.
